Irish Zen...

...for St. Patrick's Day.

W.B. Yeats wrote:

Though leaves are many, the root is one;
Through all the lying days of my youth
I swayed my leaves and flowers in the sun;
Now I may wither into the truth.

I think Yeats would have enjoyed a bamboo grove.

-Darren.


When it is rainy, I am in the rain. When it is windy, I am in the wind.  - Mitsuo Aida

Impermanence alas
truth-
the blossomy rejuvenate.


The temple bell stops, but the sound keeps coming out of the flowers. -Basho

Re: Irish Zen...

There are two kinds of people in this world, the Irish, and those who wish they were Irish.

Re: Irish Zen...

Nice quote! Noh drama influenced Yeats' plays so I'm sure there are other interesting echoes of Japan to be found. Everyone is allowed to be Irish on Paddy's Day!
